WWE, Detroit Bowling Centers support the troops

World Wrestling Entertainment Inc., Community Bowling Centers and www.bowldetroit.com have joined together to provide free bowling on Christmas night to any active or retired military personnel and their families at participating bowling centers in the area, including Skore Lanes, 22255 Ecorse Road, Taylor.

WWE’s participation is linked to Detroit being home of WrestleMania 23 on Sunday, April 1, 2007, at Ford Field.

WWE superstars just returned from visiting troops stationed in Iraq. On Monday, December 25, Christmas night, WWE will present “WWE Tribute to the Troops: Christmas in Baghdad,” on USA Network at 9 p.m. The television special will highlight military personnel telling their stories, interacting with WWE superstars on their trip, and enjoying a presentation of WWE action.

The free bowling will take place during the show.

To commemorate the airing of the special, WWE has created 5,000 special collector edition Raw Dog Tags that will be distributed to all guests attending the Christmas night event, which kicks off a weekly “Monday Night Raw” Bowling Night in Detroit beginning in January and continuing through WrestleMania 23.

Skore Lanes, which open at 5 p.m. Christmas Day, can be reached at (313) 291-6220.
